What an interesting place to visit. A real swimming hole with waterfalls and different depths of water. If you don't want to swim, take off your shoes and put your feet in the water.

Very nice cold waters to refresh yourself on a hot day. It is good for everyone, easy access. Make sure you bring your water shoes as there are somo very slippery areas. Will be back with the family!!!

This place is simply beautiful!! We walked the trails and enjoyed the peaceful, natural beauty! This is the perfect place for families, couples or even just some alone time! I would spend every weekend here if I loved in Gtown!

This place is super cool! There were lots of kids jumping off of rocks into the water, people relaxing, families and pets there. Certainly plan on visiting here again in the near future. Such a peaceful and beautiful place!

This park is just so pretty. A fun little hike, and a fun little area. The view is pretty and the water is nice and cold 😁.
